This portrait of a scantily clad Sigourney Weaver, shot on the Warner Bros film studios lot in California, presents Weaver as a phantom femme fatale, imposingly dressed in an inky black dress. Nicknamed the 'The Sci-Fi Queen', Weaver became an icon of the growing sci-fi culture that flooded Hollywood in the 80's and 90's through seminal films franchises such as Alien and Ghostbusters. Newton was personally attracted to this growing world of special effects, fantasy and the grotesque, forging a lasting relationship with Weaver.
This is a rare pre-1985 original vintage print produced in small numbers from a series of transparencies that Newton considered his most provocative and important work through 1985.
